Ecclestone also sharply criticised democracy claiming: 'It hasn't done a lot of good for many countries - including this one.'
:roll: Ironically, he's probably one of those complaining that foreigners think it's cushy here, too. So on one hand people like him think it's a terrible place (so terrible they're freely allowed to air their views), and on the other it's so good that it's a magnet for immigrants. Can't have it both ways to suit whatever the issue of the moment is.

It's not just an apology for Nazism, that's full-blown Stormfront talk. The "whatever else he did" ploy is just to deflect attention.

Edit: actually, all the comments on that story are pretty scary. A lot of apologists for dictatorships getting rated up. I wonder if these are the same people who protest against democratic freedoms being eroded?

Hitler did have some good qualities whatever else he did.
But the bad things were so bad they sort of cancelled out the good things...
He got Germany working again, gave people pride in their country and their jobs, ended hyper-inflation


So if Gordon Brown had managed it, you'd be singing his praises as well, would you? Fat chance. Besides most people really weren't that bothered, if you actually bother to look it up. The fanatics believed it, obviously, but most just kept quiet and got on with making life as little unpleasant as possible.
and fought the greatest evil mankind has ever known, Communism.


Firstly, only a Mail reader would say that. Second, he was more than happy to do deals with the Communists in 1938 with the molotov-Ribbentrop pact to achieve his other sinister aims. Thirdly, the Soviet Union was not a communistical state. It was a right-wing oligarchy portraying itself as a people's republic. In reality, Stalin was probably almost as far to the right as Adolf himself (for it is he).
Hitler hated the Jews for 2 reasons. First because Jewish-German bankers pulled the plug on Germany's WW1 war effort in return for Churchill's Balfour Agreement which ceeded them Palestine


Wrong wrong wrong WRONG! In 1918 there weren't actually that many Jews in Palestine (only those who fled the Russian pogroms). It increased in the years leading up to WW2 as persecution swept across Eastern Europe. Palestine was not ceeded to anyone, it remained a Britich colonial territory until 1948 when they pulled out (in a hurry) and left the Jews and Palestinians to fight it out for themselves. The Jews were better at it.
and second because the Bolshevik Jews had already slaughtered about 25 million Russian Christians before WW2 had even started. Strange that's not considered a Holocaust isn't it?
1. Hitler couldn't give a stuff about Christianity, he only pretended to to keep the Churches happy (as the only organisations with the power to threaten his regime). Especially as they were Russians, who he regarded as sub-human Slavs anyway. 2. You cannot be a Bolshevik and a Jew. Bolshevism is an anti-religious movement, it's a contradiction in terms. Religion is, after all, the opium of the masses, according to Marx.

Not to mention the fact that Hitler's economic solutions were as dodgy as a Josef Fritzl home video. A lot of historians now believe that Hitler would have been forced into war in either case very soon after 1939 for the simple reason that he was running out of money and the shoddy patch-up methods he'd used to refloat Germany were falling apart at the seams.

Sofar 71 miserable excuses for human being agree with the scumbag below.
Despite the foul and evil things Hitler did you can not change history by refusing to look through the fog and acknowledge that some things he did for Germany were for the good. He stabilised the economy, he built autobahns but he was still a thoroughly evil man. I'm sure that Ecclestone was only making that point. Mussolini got the trains to run on time to - and that is a common saying..

I certainly don't agree with him about Hitler, or dictators in general, but I don't see why anyone's political views should get them the sack as long as they do not interfere with the job. The opposite logic is that he should be denied any employment and be kept permanently on the dole.

- Ian, Oxford, England, 7/7/2009 16:14
1) He ain't getting the sack.
2)He's a billionaire! Don't think he'll be going down to Jobcentre Plus at any future point in his life. :P

A Nazi death camp guard was today charged with assisting in the murder of about 28,000 Jews during World War II.
Two wrongs don't make a right punishing this poor old man won't bring those who died back, who we two judge him.

- Christine, UK, 13/7/2009 14:32
Okay then Christine, using your logic there's no point in having any murder trials because sending someone to jail won't bring back the dead.
Hardly his choice was it...

That's what all the Nazi apologists say.
